Sollich KG of Germany is the world’s leading supplier of chocolate enrobing, tempering, cooling, forming equipment as well as a variety of other associated equipment. For the past 80 years Sollich's team has pioneered research and development and set quality standards in designing and manufacturing chocolate and confectionery process machinery. It is their expertise and experience that have made Sollich's name synonymous with reliability and precision.


The success story of the Sollich KG began in 1920 when Robert Sollich founded a bakery/cake shop in Ratibor (Upper Silesia, Germany). 8 years later, in 1928, he invented the first vacuum sugar-boiling machine: the SOLLKOCH. This invention started what later became a full-scale manufacturing plant for machines for the candy industry. The portfolio expanded continuously with the development of the first continuous vacuum boiler – the SUPER-SOLLKOCH – among its highlights. Another patent was granted for a starchless moulding system for fondant and other soft candy products.


The company was relocated and reestablished in Bad Salzuflen in 1950. That was also the start of research and development of chocolate machinery. The invention and patenting of the circulation tempering process for the feeding of coating and moulding systems was groundbreaking and changed the chocolate industry overnight.


With Helmut Sollich, son of Robert Sollich, taking over the company in 1966, Sollich became the largest manufacturer of chocolate enrobing systems worldwide and has since then continuously proven its position as a market leader for tempering machines, enrobing systems for chocolate, compound and caramel, as well as candy and cereal bar forming equipment and praline forming machines.
